Baltic Cruise Holidays

Centuries old palaces that seem determined to outdo one another. Churches more extravagant than the last. Art museums to champion all art museums. The Baltic is a playground of riches.


You can spend two weeks visiting capital cities, cultural masterpieces and lesser-known gems. City-hop from Helsinki to St Petersburg, Tallinn, Stockholm and Copenhagen – all on one holiday. This is your chance to dive into the region and come home with a story or two to tell.
